Who looks after data protection?

Under Data Protection legislation, Alsager Community Church, which operates the Alsager and District Food Bank, is the Data Controller. This means that the Trustees decide on how your personal data is processed and for what purposes. Personal data relates to any living individual who can be identified by that data.

 

Why we hold and process this personal data

We collect and use your information from Referral agencies and from yourself, in order to provide you with food during a time of crisis.  We may also hold your information if you support us financially or donate goods or volunteer with us.  Data Protection legislation allows us to process this information as we regard it as being in the church’s legitimate interest.

 

How we will keep and use the information

Your personal data will be treated as strictly confidential.  We use your information within the Food Bank team of coordinators to facilitate the distribution of food and other support. ACC also use information to maintain our own financial accounts; and to manage volunteers. We may contact you after a donation with a thank you note if you have not donated anonymously. All data is kept securely in locked cabinets and any electronic devices are password and antimalware protected. No information is passed on to third parties unless it is necessary as part of our legal compliance. We use AoL as our email provider.

 

Access to, correcting and removing the information

We retain data in line with our Data Retention Schedule, which is available on ACC’s website or in the Data Protection Lead. You have the right to ask to see any information we hold about you by submitting a ‘Subject Access Request’ to the church office. You also have the right to ask for any information which you believe to be incorrect, to be rectified and you have the right to have that data deleted. Please note, even if your data is removed, some data will continue to be archived in line with legal requirements or to provide you with a service you are currently using.

 

 

Any concerns?

You can find Alsager Community Church’s full Privacy Notice on the website or in the church office. If you are concerned about the way your information is being handled, please speak to our Data Protection Lead. If you are still unhappy you have the right to complain to the Information Commissioner’s Office.
